more importantly: what was YOUR answer?

My first instinct was to say "south of here" but the patron is nice and that was a condescending answer for someone who honestly wanted some help...I got the patron an atlas, pointed out South America, and left it at that.

...but I did have to blog about it

It would have been just as easy to point her towards the ocean, tell her to swin or rent a boat and go a looooooon way in a SW-erly direction. Once she hits land, she'll be in MEXICO. That is NOT S.A. But she merely has to orient herself southward, trudge on, and before she knows where she is - by golly - she'll be in S.A.
Sometimes you reference people just don't want to share info....
